This sounds like an identical problem I had twice with my 2004 1.6 TDCI and it turned out to be a wiring problem with the loom which went into the ECU, (thats what the garage told and charged me for ) and its been fine ever since. Also with mine, it was after it had not been touched or started for a period of two weeks or more and they said water had got into the wiring. Don't know if this is any help but good luck.

The symptoms sound exactly like my own experience with a c-max last year - flashing lights etc.
Diagnosed by the AA as the alternator (charges the battery)
If yours is an automatic you may also want to check out the forum on www.honestjohn.co.uk regarding C-Max premature transmission/gearbox failures as the alternator was the just the start of a nightmare when it came to my own c-max!!
